Re: Your favorite hook

Barry

I'm with Bill in that almost all the soft hackle dressings I tie, I use the Daiichi 1550 or 1530 hooks. I also like the old Partrridge Caps. Hamilton hooks that I've purchased from Richard Jefferies (he now lives in France).

Re: W.C. Stewart's Definition of Upstream Fishing?

If you have access to Oliver Edwards' video on Wet Fly Fishing on either DVD or YouTube, he describes and demonstrates Stewart's Upstream Fishing method. You can see some of the method here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge7Cl6ltAAs

Re: Leaders for Swing Wets

John

I've been using Maxima Ultragreen in tying my leaders for many years ... using Oliver Kite's leader formula (or as close as I can get to it) of 20# (54"), 12# (10"), 6# (10"), 5# (10")& 4# (36").
